    All membership applications and renewals should be submitted & paid to The Hydrographic Society of America at www.thsoa.org. In recent months members have been renewing their memberships via the Houston Chapter website at http://houston.thsoa.org instead of through the National website.

    We ask members to please apply, renew and pay for their membership via the THSOA website as it streamlines the membership application/renewal process. The Houston Chapter website should only be used for Houston Chapter events registrations.

    If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the administrative assistant at admin@thsoa.org.

    The Hydrographic Society of America Board of Directors approved a $10 dues increase for Individual memberships associated to National. Effective January 1, 2016, the annual dues will increase to $35.

    Your elected Board of Directors gave careful and thoughtful consideration to the issue of increasing the National Individual membership in these financially difficult times. This action was taken in response to some confusion among members. Previously National Individual Membership was $25. This created confusion among members because Chapter associated Membership is $35. Adding the $10 increase to National associated dues will clear up any confusion we have in the future.

    The membership dues will not change for Corporate, Retired and Student Membership.

    If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the administrative assistant at admin@thsoa.org.
